what local service providers REALLY need

There are several organizations in Skid Row that have needs for very specific things. As I get the information directly from the local service providers, I will list them here, along with contact information.


Become a Volunteer

We have learned that being a tutor to a homeless child doesn’t take a lot of time, but the impact is enormous – for both of you.

Our volunteers come from all backgrounds and professions with one goal: to make a positive difference in the life of a homeless student.

Be sure to read about our Volunteer Roles to find out more about the requirements, responsibilities, and qualifications.
